An early Chinese pottery snuff bottle decorated in underglaze cobalt blue with a design of the Yin/Yang symbol surrounded by six sets of three stripes in a round reserve. On the two sides there is a cross on the neck in the same cobalt blue. The bottle is a flattened rounded hexagonal shape on a raised foot. This tiny bottle measures 1 7/8" high by 1 1/4" wide by 1/2" thick. Excellent condition - no stopper or spoon - a couple of frits to the base. We date this bottle to the mid to late 19th century.
